      Firmino is a striker.

      Klopp has said it numerous times he is a striker.

      They are different types of strikers sure, but Firmino can offer more than Sturridge that's why Firmino gets the nod ahead of him. Saying Fabinho not pressing like lallana is also a ridiculous claim. Both actually press the same but Fabinho is overall fitter and better right now than Lallana.
      Lallana think his best days are behind him. He become the new sturridge with all these muscle injuries.

      Both players have different qualities, but Fabinho really doesn't press like Lallana.
      It may just be because of his deeper role, and that he'd be perfectly capable of it if he played further up, but as things stand, I'd have to say Lallana is the better presser.

      Sure, I agree, both have different qualities, but both can press equally and both can nick balls away from oppositions. The only problem I have with Fabinho that he tries to dives into a tackle to get the ball away, which is risky.

      So getting back to the forthcoming games. Having been sacked by Liverpool, does Brendan now put out a weak side v city, or alter tactics to lessen their chances, just to piss us off, or will he go for it full on hoping for a place in next seasons europa league ?
      Any opinions on this ?

      He will try to win the game for himself and Leicester

      We won't be in his thinking

      These professionals aren't as emotional about it as us

      I would hope so, but we’ll never really know what he’s thinking will we. 🤷‍♂️

      Get the f**k innnnnnn.

      Set the alarm for 4.30am for 4.45 KO. Woke up and it was 6am ...f**k missed the whole 1st Half.

      Ran downstairs, turned on the telly, saw it was HT and we were winning so went outside for the usual game ritual.

      Watching the 2nd half and those cu*ts scored for 2-2. Tears rolling down my eyes, couldn't believe at the time, that we could be saying goodbye to the Title today, so walked outside at the 70 minute mark, destroyed, pulled a couple of cones, took a deep breath and walked back inside.  Watched, waited, hoped and prayed and then f**king Origgggggggggiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii , you little f**king beauty. Was shitting myself for the rest of the match but when that final whistle went, I went f**king nuts!!!!


      On to the game ( I watched a replay of the first half later in the day) .....was surprised when Rafa lined up with 5-4-1 but more surprised he started with Rondon and Perez when he left them out in the Anfield match. Maybe he made up for that by leaving Jonjo on the bench. You know, he might have had that same feeling of 'that player' who could come back to bite their old Club on the arses and he didn't want that scenario, so left him out. (That's what I like to think anyways, so maybe Rafa did do us a small favour, without the whole world actually realizing it!!)

      Loved Trent's 2 assists, now on an equal par with Robbo and that's just insane.

      Loved VVD's unmarked header, brilliantly headed downwards so the Keeper had no chance.

      Loved Mo's goal with his non preferred foot.

      Loved how VVD told Shaq to take that free kick. What f**king Leadership that was.

      Loved how Divock has those Dreadlocks long enough to get a glance on to that header onto the Defenders head and into the back of the net.

      Loved the final result!!!

      I am so proud of our Boys, never give in, never give up and never lie down

      Would have loved to have seen those Manc cu*ts faces when Origi nodded home. They would have been demoralized. Let's hope Brendan, Jamie Vardy, Maddison and that huge f**ker Maguire have monster games and get the win or the very least a draw to set us on the way to Number 19.

      Above all things Brendan is a professional and will set up his team to try and win. Just like Rafa did.

      Lallana think his best days are behind him. He become the new sturridge with all these muscle injuries.

      If it's me I would try all cost to send Adam on loan to West Brom once he fit enough. Danny came back after loan there and never look a fragile flower again  >:D
      Not because I rate Adam that much but can't imagine life without that Cruyff turns if Klopp let him go  ;D

      Seriously it's just one of an entertain game this season. That our ex boy Manquillo has a decent look I would say he's better than our Alberto already. Only bad thing is Mo injury. Well done boss and boys,  COYR :scarf:
